TOWNSHIP BASEBALL COLLEGE PREP HOME PAGE
The Township Baseball Board is pleased to finally announce the 2021 Tryout and Training schedules for our high-performance programs! This has been a long process with a lot of uncertainties… but we have worked hard with the Township of Langley to secure the use of the Aldergrove Batting Cages under very strict guidelines. We are limited to the numbers of athletes and coaches in the facility, but we have somewhere to train and run through the tryouts.
We know that it would be more ideal to have full gyms or other facilities to run this process, but the tryouts & training will look different this year as we have had to adjust. Our program will be run in four (4) Phases:
Phase 1 - Winter Warm Up – 1 Week – this will give the athletes an opportunity to get back to baseball and train with our Head Development Coach, Joe Germain. A total of three hours per group working on fundamentals of Baseball.
Phase 2 – Tryouts – 2 Weeks – There will be four sessions per athlete for this phase of the process with the expectation that athletes are going to all four of these sessions. Joe Germain & newly named College Prep Head Coach Russell Kennedy will be running these evaluations. Selections will be made to move into the next phase of the process from here. Up to 16 players will continue to the next phase and the remaining players will be released back to their home association for the AA season.
Phase 3 – Winter Development – 4 Weeks – Tryouts and training continue. Joe &/ or Russ will again be working with the group during this phase to supporting the development. This will run twice a week for four weeks. We may be able to get out onto a field during this phase if the weather cooperates. Coaches may add other development (Pitching & Catching) as needed at an additional cost.
Phase 4 – Teams Formed and Training – The team will be formed by February 21st. Regular season training will start.
** at any point during these phases, if an indoor facility (TWU or LEC) become available, we will move what we can indoors.
